Respectful Insolence

The worst theme park in the world?

It’s the Memorial Day weekend, and many of you will be taking off for various recreational activities over the three day weekend. Sadly, I’ll be on call and thus working the entire weekend, having drawn the short straw for this particular holiday.

However, to console myself with the fact that it could be worse, I’ll remember that I could be spending time at what is probably the worst amusement park in the world.

    Parks for kids in the Middle East typically run at night, not the day, especially once the heat hits. Folks don’t go out and about in the mid-Day Sun unless they’re Mad Dogs and/or Englishmen [heathens]. I countries like Kuwait, after 9PM or whenever it starts to cool off, men will start congregating on blankets in the desert, women in the expensive restaurants, and families at the Parks with their kids. Another favorite spot is to park you car, even on the highway or exit ramps, near the local airport to watch planes take off and land…

    Depressing. It’s as bad as the movie-themed park we went to in Taipei a couple years back. I think that we were the only paying customers that week. On the other hand there is a park on the way between Beijing and the great wall that I heard had input from Disney that wasn’t half bad (I went on on a local tour bus with a Chinese colleague and got a different view from the usual tourist fare. I guess the driver was paid to stop there)

    Mark Frank: I think your link wins the BEST Theme Park In The World Award… The hell with Disney or Hovind!
